Buy-A-Ball allows us to stand strongly in our mission of connecting all people one loop at a time, igniting joy globally.
Weave strands of your whānau into Wharenui Harikoa.
We know the threads of connection grow one ball of yarn at a time, and with every loop of the hook, our hāpori expands.
The Wharenui Harikoa is for all people, where we grow a new togetherness.
A symbiotic dance between hope for our future and deep reverence for our past, as the Wharenui expands in strength so do we, supporting the kaupapa of healing.
We would like to offer you, our community, the opportunity to weave yourselves into this monument, where each member of your whānau has the ability to be represented in the dressing of Wharenui Harikoa, to spin a yarn for generations to come.
With a generous 47m of yarn in every ball, each contribution is significant as we build this celebration of humanity.
We gratefully acknowledge the valuable arts grant funding received to facilitate the structure of our Wharenui from the Ministry of Culture & Heritage, but your contribution is the shine that makes it glow.
Greatness is measured one ball at a time, and this time the ball is in your court.
Donate on behalf of your Kuia, your Nannys, your tamariki.
If you want to support us or even if you're just feeling extra Harikoa!!!
It will take over 5000 balls of yarn to create Wharenui Harikoa.
That's over 235,000 metres. Buy-A-Ball allows you and your whānau to become part of the kaupapa, and allows us to stay connected to our hāpori (community) during the final phases of getting Wharenui Harikoa completed for Matariki 2023.
By donating, you and your whānau are sponsoring one crochet tile of 27cm² within the wharenui. Contributing your mauri as part of the architecture, supporting us in sharing our aroha to the world.
